Vacancy for external advisor

Vacancy for external advisor

The Open University Access Programme have a vacancy for an external advisor.  Their current external advisor’s term will end on 31 August 2021 so they would like a new EA to be in place by then. The first formal meeting attendance will be December 2021, but they hope a new EA will be able to attend (virtually) for the September meeting too so they can get up to speed before they are asked to produce a report. The role is a particularly collegial and developmental one and will cover areas very relevant to the interests of UALL colleagues.

Open University guidance for the appointment of a new External Advisor for the  Access Board Of Studies which includes eligibility and information about the role is available here.

For further information or to discuss the position, contact Professor John Butcher, Director Access, Open and Cross-curricular Innovation on:
